Circulating levels of corticosterone were determined in chick embryos from 10 to 21 days of incubation using eggs from a Leghorn breeder flock. In Experiment 1, eggs were incubated from 10 to 20 days for daily embryonic blood collection. To verify stage of development with day of incubation, embryo right middle toe lengths were measured concurrent with blood sampling. Serum from three embryos was pooled into one sample and the corticosterone content of 10 samples per day of incubation was… CONTINUE READING
